The Seniors lead the way this week with all three teams winning!

The Firsts beat Cricklewood Wanderers 1-0 away. After their defeat last week, the Firsts bounced back with a solid defensive display, and one vital goal to secure the three points. The upper echelons of the table look incredibly inviting as the Dragons games in hand might see them push their rivals to the end of the season.

The Blues won 2-0 at home to London Titans. The Dragons put on a wonderful performance as they shut out the Titans – above them in the League – and scored twice to deny the visitors any chance in this happiest of afternoons.

The Old Dragonians won 3-2 away at One Brotherhood. The Old Ds were caught as cold as the weather on Gunnersbury Park as they went behind early in this relegation 6 pointer, but remained calm and fought back to take the lead early in the 2nd half. After being pegged back in the last quarter with both teams pushing for a vital winner, the Dragons broke down the left wing and a cross was converted to secure the win.

The New U11 Boys beat Wealdstone 4-1 away. In a continued and incredible run of form, the Dragons are unbeaten in 7 matches as Wealdstone added an agreed to tenth outfield player to try to match the mighty Dragons. A great performance.

The U12 Boys beat Princes Park 3-1 at home. And there we have it – The Dragons have won the League! The Dragons recovered from last week’s hiccup to put in a very mature performance against their closest rivals in the table. It was a very exciting post-match atmosphere.

The U13 Boys lost at home to Inv3ntive. The match started evenly before Inv3ntive scored twice but the Dragons then scored a tremendous goal from long range followed by a close-range tussle to make it 2-2. The superior size of the Inv3ntive players proved irresistible towards the end of the second half as they pulled ahead to win.

The U14 Boys won 6-1 away at St Joseph’s. A decisive victory on the road that keep the Dragons at the top of the table by three points. With a handful of games to go, the Dragons know they must remain focused to emulate the U12 Boys emphatic League win.

The U15 Boys won 2-0 to Hendon at home. It was very cold and the Dragons took a while to warm up and get into their stride but did manage to sneak in a goal before half time. In the second half they had many on shots but converted only one. .

The U16 Boys were awarded 3 points as Brook House could not field a team. This leaves the Dragons on equal top points with Old Actonians on the assumption that the OAs win their last match. The title will then be decided in a Playoff.

The U17 Boys lost 0-3 to Hanwell Town at home. Missing their goalie and striker meant versatility was needed. The Dragons held rival Hanwell to a tight first half but eventually succumbed to the pressure and were left imagining what their full side might have done on the day.

The U10s trained in preparation for entering the League.

The U12 Girls lost at home to Barnet Nightingales. The Dragons played hard to the end, but this time it was not their day against a very good unbeaten team.

The U13 Girls were beaten 1-4 to Ruislip Rangers away. A tough day away from home for the Dragons who tried to extend their three-game unbeaten run, but eventually were tired out. The Dragons stay pushing for runners-up in the League.

The U14 Girls won both contests, 5-1 and 4-0 respectively, in a double header to Kinja at home. Two games, 9 goals, 1 clean sheet, 6 points in the bag. A great day at the office. The Dragons were on the front foot for most of the two games and gained good experience for a second double header due in April.

The U15 Girls lost away at Wealdstone in the Semi Final of the League Cup. The Dragons unfortunately went out with only 10 players and battled from the start of the game until the final whistle. The Dragons nevertheless communicated well, adapted to different positions and maintained high spirits despite losing.

The U17 Girls narrowly lost 1-2 to Highbury Rangers away in the Semi Final of the League Cup. In such a tight game, the Dragons battled Highbury with all their might but were sadly left dreaming of the Final. These resilient Dragons will return!
